  • Nylon Calculus: What’s driving the Celtics regression?

That was until Monday night in New Orleans.

Washington stayed at home and defeated the Houston Rockets, 135-131, in overtime Monday night.

The Wizards are feeling better about themselves after winning three of their last four.

"Marcus, he's a tough player", Marcus Morris said. "Every time we got within a workable distance, it was either a (Pelicans) turnover or they'd make a three". If we win, they give my team the credit and I'm fine with that ... "He's stepped up. It's not an easy thing to accept, but that's what he does".

In a league of super-teams, it's not a great sign when a player feels he has to do it all to keep his team competitive. He's playing his best basketball off the bench.

Teams like the Boston Celtics, Los Angeles Lakers, and Golden State Warriors are considered suitors right now, but the list would expand if teams think Davis is gone from New Orleans. As one of the most highly anticipated teams heading into the 2018-19 season, throughout 21 games, the team has an 11-10 record which stands sixth in the Eastern Conference. No matter what happens, though, Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry isn't interested in speculation. He said the film would only show mistakes the players were already aware of. "We started off the game and we never looked back". We want to push the ball and play at a high pace.

The New Orleans Pelicans just finished a road trip. It has allowed an average of 36.3 first-quarter points in the last three games. Anthony Davis was held to a pedestrian 27 points and 16 rebounds (pedestrian by Brow standards, that is), and other than a hot streak from Nikola Mirotic in the second quarter, none of Davis' supporting cast was able to get much going.
